Happy Thanksgiving ya'll!

This year, as always, I'm reminded of the blessings of the Lord on my life...so many...and so little room to tell of them all.

I've got a wonderful hubby, whom I love and tend to with great care...and look upon with great admiration.

I've got five amazing daughters, each with their own personalities and thoughts...and each with their own little minds forever asking mommy questions that make her think!

AJ, my biggest baby, is an amazing daughter...and an amazing big sister. She's good at anything she tries....she loves holding her baby sister, and can't wait for a few more years to pass when she can babysit!

AR is my second baby. She's my lil momma...she loves to care for her little sisters, and even her big sister or mom when we're sick! She likes to cook and loves to help clean. She's often seen reading to her three year old sister...

CM is my middle girl. She's all heart...and all spunk. This is an accurate pic of her...b/c she has two speeds....awake and sleeping! she's got two volumes too...loud, or asleep!

C-G is my three year old bundle of joy. She desperately wants to be as big as her sisters...and really wants her little sister to be big enough to play with her!

Miss V is our newest addition. She's learning new things every day...like how to make the bouncy seat toy sing, or how to smile....and laugh. she can roll over, she can grab things, and she's trying hard to sit up...all at eight weeks old! She tips the scales now at 16 pounds (last week) and she's loving every minute of her little happy life!

I'm grateful for this wonderful home God has provided for us...

There is so much...soooo much that I am thankful for....one just can't imagine!

another update...

hey all. i'm still around...i promise! life with a new baby is always such an adjustment! so, i'm feeling all back to normal...or a new version of normal anyway...mastitis seems to be gone...and the uti is gone, then back thanks to antibiotics. lol. i'll work on it when i'm done with the meds...it's nothing unusual for me...thanks to an allergic reaction to disposable feminine products that must be used after having a baby...well life is interesting!

so anyway...when i get back home, i'll post some more pics of the children...so cute! actually, scratch that...i have the five pics here to show ya!!!

so, i bought the girls some new dress up clothes...so here are some pics to share!

this is AJ, all "cleopatraed" up!

This is AR, my little China doll.

And my supergirl CM!

my cheerleader. makes me wanna say "save the cheerleader save the world!"

and this is Miss V, all dressed up like a baby...she pulls it off well right?

so there they are all cute and stuff. and as a lovely treat, here's a pic of me with miss v so you know i'm real. :)

this is us at the fair...she kept me warm!

an update...

just so you don't think i've fallen off the face of the earth! I have been sick! very sick! last week i ended up in the ER with a crazy high fever, the chills and sweats, and a headache that wouldn't stop. i'd taken tylenol to bring down the fever, but it didn't help...when i could no longer walk, a friend came over with her daughter...the daughter to watch the girls, and the friend to take me to the ER. Diagnosis...massive mastitis with a roaring case of a UTI. he said the two combined made me one sick mommy! massive amounts of antibiotics later, and i'm finally feeling almost normal. still sleep deprived, but normalish.

so now you know why i haven't kept up with blogging over the past two weeks...too sick. we're playing catch up with school work this week...and daddy is coming home early. so today will be very busy...but perhaps i can get back here later to post pics of the new dress up clothes i bought for the girls this week...they are so cute!
